8.10PM THURSDAY APRIL 18TH
SILENT RUNNING

- 4K RESTORATION
 

After years of creating the game-changing special effects for movies like 2001: A Space Odyssey, Close Encounters, and Blade Runner, legendary special effects supervisor Douglas Trumball turned his hand to directing. This, his remarkable debut, casts the irrepressible Bruce Dern (The Driver, The Burbs, Nebraska, The Hateful Eight) as Freeman Lowell, an interstellar botanist and caretaker of the last ecosystem in existence, (now that earth is barren of all flora and fauna) on a space station near Saturn. Featuring Trumbull’s trademark special effects the film is also a wonderfully heartfelt piece featuring ecological themes light years ahead of its time. A cult classic amongst film fans and critics alike, with Mark Kermode listing it as a personal favourite that he prefers over and above Kubrick’s 2001.

MAGNOLIA

- 25TH ANNIVERSARY SCREENING
 

Join us for a special 25th anniversary screening of this remarkable film from Paul Thomas Anderson, director of such incredible films as Boogie Nights, Punch Drunk Love, There Will Be Blood, Phantom Thread and Licorice Pizza. An epic mosaic of San Fernando Valley life, it follows a varied collection of interrelated characters brought to life by one of the most remarkable ensemble casts in cinema history. All uniformly giving career best performances the likes of Phillip Seymour Hoffman (The Talented Mr. Ripley), Julianne Moore (Still Alice), Tom Cruise (who is nothing short of revelatory here), John C. Reilly (The Sisters Brothers), Jason Robards (All The President’s Men), William H. Macy (Fargo) and more weave a remarkable emotional, surreal, joyous, twisting tale of life, masterfully executed by one of the truly great directors of today.

8PM WEDNESDAY MAY 15TH
SECRET MOVIE CLUB PRESENTS 

'GOOD VS EVIL'

+ OPTIONAL POST FILM

DISCUSSION GROUP
 

Our "Secret Movie Club" project takes a movie you most likely haven't seen before (but will instantly love) and keeps the identity of the movie a secret, only revealing which film you are watching when the opening credits roll.

For this Secret Movie Club we investigate the timeless themes of good and evil through an unlikely lens. This special screening of a rarely seen film concentrates on a recent time in American history that we are only just beginning to understand and offers a microcosm of the modern cultural landscape. Once dubbed one of the greatest movies ever in its genre by The Wall Street Journal, our mystery movie for May is all at once as bizarre as Kafka, and as tragic as Shakespeare, yet still offers the urgency, excitement and fun of even the most vibrant elements of American pop culture. The optional post film discussion group offers a chance to dive even further into what is an endlessly fascinating film both in its subject matter and themes.

8.20PM FRIDAY MAY 31ST
DAVID BYRNE'S AMERICAN UTOPIA
 

This new spiritual sequel to the classic Stop Making Sense concert film sees Talking Heads front-man David Byrne lead a collection of incredibly talented international musicians in an onstage whirlwind of glorious music, dance, human connection and political urgency. David Byrne gives us his personal guide to life in this incredible stage show event captured brilliantly by the great Spike Lee, who creates a magical flowing iridescent cinematic dream out of Byrne’s musical vision.

 

Pulling from the likes of James Baldwin, Janelle Monáe and Kurt Schwitters as well as his own solo music, it’s all nestled neatly inside a glut of gloriously performed Talking Heads classics. Once again redefining what is possible with a concert film, this joyously cathartic celebration of life is as exhilarating and charming a big screen experience as you are ever likely to have, don’t miss this special, ultra rare screening that is sure to burn down the house.
